Someone who understands Japanese please give us details! It looks likea 500E with a Toyota Supra I6 stuck under the hood.


They took out the freaken M119 the best damn part, I'm not sure if I like it or hate it. Still thats a cool car!

The I6 Supra isn't a bad replacement, specially the twin turbo one.

Not a bad replacement at all.. lots of people making tons of power with them. I would like a Supra, but they are still too expensive for me. Just watched it.. nice that they went with the single turbo.. I was hoping to see something other than drifting in the wet though. Drifting isn't my thing.

Ahh so they just bolted on some 500E fenders. I thought the seats looked funny too, AFAIK the 500E's only came with leather.

a single turbo supra engine is enough. A friend of mine has one and let me say, that thing will push you so far back in your seat, you couldn't throw up if you tried.

The twin turbo Supra engine is a beauty, gobs of power with refinement. I drove one with TRD parts which was making close to 400bhp, that thing was a monster and yet the engine remained so smooth even close to its rev limits. You simply couldn't destroy it. The original I6 engine in Supra was designed in conjunction with Yamaha and remains as the all time great engines in the automotive world along with others. The V6 Yamaha designed SHO engine for Taurus comes to mind.
